“Perfect, close to the beach, and number one quiet not busy...”
Reviewed 20 November 2013

Away from the hustle an bustle of surfers paradise I highly recommend staying here, I stayed in ocean view apartment facing the ocean breathtaking we were on corner apartment so we had 2 balcony's. Rooms are great big for a big family had 2 bathrooms, everything about the apartment was in great condition nice kitchen view to the sea cannot fault. Even had a TV that played HDMI so were able to watch movies at night when it was time for a quiet night. Being first time in Gold Coast, I travelled all around the world from Europe to Asia. I found this place the best place to stay.
The reception was very helpful, only paid $150 deposit since I didn't have a credit card that's was great and there always made you feel at home. Gym was basic but it was very useful for me and indoor pool was fantastic for my wife and daughter. Underground parking was safe and secure and the good thing it was numbered so you always had a parking spot for your stay. The room number you had is your parking spot number.
Beach just 5mins walk away... either direction they have surf life savers patrolling the beach, close to the shops perfect for dinner and breakfast. Check out the Lemon grass thai restaurant or indian Goa that's what we had for dinner. The good thing about staying here its close to sea world 10min drive no traffic. 20-25min away from Warner Bros, Wet n wild just take the M1 Motorway an your there. We stayed away from School holiday period I'm guess this area would be chock a block. If you have a young family than this is the place to stay or anywhere in Main Beach strip. I be defiantly be back here in the coming years.

Hi Swizzbeatz, we loved your review! You obviously enjoyed Xanadu and it's great to see you really got the most out of the area. It's always a pleasure to read about our guests holidays and what they got up to - you must have had a fun time. Now the weather has warmed up, the beach and water parks are a popular destination for everyone.

My wife, 8mo boy and myself stayed in a one-bedroom (simply means the other bedroom and bathroom were locked during our stay) apartment in the north tower over the recent Gold Coast 600 V8 Supercars weekend. The apartment was spacious and very well appointed, with comfy furniture and a stunning beach view.
The kitchen had all the utensils and appliances you need while the ensuite bathroom was also large and had a bathtub, which is handy when staying there with an infant.
While I was there in a work capacity, my wife made use of the apartment's facilities which includes an indoor and outdoor pool and gym. The beach is minutes away by foot while the dining areas around Tedder Avenue offer something for everything, at any budget.
Basically Xanadu is a great set of apartments close to everything you need for a weekend holiday. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Try to get a room in a higher floor to maximise the view. Rooms in the centre of the tower also have...

Hi Ed J thanks for the great review - much appreciated. That V8 week is a very busy time around here and often chaotic with the road closures and a lot of people around, so I I'm glad your family enjoyed themselves while you toughed it out at work all week.

Thanks again for the great review and I hope to see you back again next year for an even better event (so I hear).

I stayed at Xanadu recently with my husband and son and we were very impressed! A huge 2 bedroom apartment, very clean with 2 great pools on location! Right across the road from beach, short stroll to restaurants on Tedder and 5 mins drive to shops at Marina Mirage. Main Beach is our favourite location for a visit to Gold Coast and Xanadu made it stress free.

Hi LeesForman thank you for the great review and I'm glad to read you enjoyed your holiday with us recently. You will have noticed that Xanadu is very family friendly and during the holiday season it takes on a whole different look with children of all ages everywhere. With great restaurants and shops just a few minutes walk away, you can park your car in the basement and leave it there. You sound like you made the most of Main Beach and enjoyed your holiday.

If you are planning to return, please contact us directly for the possible rooms and rates.

We stayed for one week with our three boys in a ocean view superior room (North building) on the 23 rd floor. The apartment was really lovely and had such a lot of space for a family, the largest holiday apartment we have ever seen, the views were amazing from every room of our apartment. The staff at reception were very welcoming and always helpful through out our stay. Special thanks to Ann at reception. We would definitely stay at Xanadu again, when next at the Gold Coast. The property is so close to everything, like the best restaurants in Tedder Avenue, we had lovely breakfasts and other meals at Tedder Avenue and they are just around the corner from Xanadu. Seaworld theme park is also just a short drive from Xanadu and the fantastic Marina Mirage is just a short ten minute walk up the road, with great shopping and restaurants. We can highly recommend the Providore Restaurant and deli at Marina Mirage, we got some terrific quality take away meals for our evenings on our deck from here and breakfasts amazing at the Providore. Would most defiantly highly recommend this property to anyone, we have no complaints at all, the perfect location and such a beautiful setting. Thank you Xanadu.

Room Tip: Rooms in North building on the higher floors amazing views from every direction and room.

Quite simply superb in every way. We shared a 2 bed apartment, we where amazed when we walked in the first day, the place was bigger than our house!!
With the four of us sharing it only works out at £50 per couple per night! Superb value.
Facilities in apartment are superb, the hotel indoor pool is like a bath! Can't fault the place in any way. Top notch eateries just around the corner, we ate in five of them and they were all superb.
If need supplies when you arrive then nip round the corner to shop on Tedder street.
Can't wait to come back!
